Castellfollit sobre el basalt / A town above the lava flow

Castellfollit de la Roca és realment una vil·la única. Talment com un vaixell sobre les ones, es llença sobre el basalt fins la proa coronada per l'antiga església.

The catalan town of Castellfollit de la Roca it's really unique. It was built in the middle ages above a former lava flow turned to basalt (with the characteristic columns). Like a ship's prow, the former church of Sant Salvador stands at the tip of this stone wall...

It's part of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, the only volcanos in Catalonia and all the Iberic peninsula.
